    Hope he gets in soon. Celtic cutting them up 4-0. StJ is shambolic at the back, they’ve given up 3 sweaty FIFA goals letting Burke run free down the right side.

    He’s on at the 66’ as the final sub.
    Burke took a knock.

    He’s going to score or get an assist.

    Espn+.

    ETA: Celtic shirts plus the cameras being placed on an interstellar satellite make it impossible to see the player numbers. This fact alone makes me against Edouard and Weah playing at the same time.

    Welp. I was wrong. (cc: @DHC1 ) About Timo scoring or assisting, that is. Definitely right about the numbers being difficult to see.

    Stroll in the park. But got in 23 minutes, quite a few touches but mostly all in open space with little pressure. Checking to a lot, playing like false 9 ish type of thing, sliding across the field and coming back a bit. Really wants to play the 1-2s and move the ball quiick. Would have been good to take the man on a bit and create in these blowout situations. But he played responsible and conservative, rightfully so.

    No good or bad this game, tight possession and lots of movement. Total blowout.

    This match marks the return of James Forrest from injury, so Weah is likely to be a sub only for a while. At least according to the fans.

    What I was thinking as well. Portugal came within a stupid penalty from possibly making the Euro Final in 2000. 2002 is weird to take any lessons from. They obviously underestimated the hell out of the US, heck they didn't even estimate us. Then they curb stomped Poland, so they put themselves in a situation where a win over S. Korea would put them through but then they ran into the same problems they ran into at the Euro semifinals two years earlier, and in the Battle of Nuremberg against the Dutch four years later, losing their heads and getting carded out of the game (though they nearly pulled off the result due to god awful S. Korean finishing). That generation just had a horrific temperament, and that temperament played a key role in costing them at the Euro's in 2000, the WC in '02, and nearly cost them against the Dutch at Germany '06. I was more impressed w/the less talented Ronaldo Portuguese sides which seemed to play a much more canny, result oriented game, and other than WC '14, those sides typically batted above their weight.

    England's already doing well w/this golden generation so that doesn't fit either. This generation of USMNT's is a golden generation FOR US. I don't think it fits the world classification as none of these guys is a world star yet. That Portugal side had multiple world star's including a player of the year candidate. Ditto England. We've finally got a generation that has pushed around a half dozen players into top leagues in Europe. That's something we've never accomplished with any particular generation and more players are coming. That being said, all these guys are basically 23 or younger (and mostly 21 or younger), and so a ton could happen between now and when a player typically underlines and italicizes their status as world class or at least, league class.

    Fingers crossed but w/injuries having already conspired to ruin so many young prospect and young player careers in American Soccer History since 2000 (thinking Josh Wolff, Clint Mathis, John O'Brien, Eddie Johnson, Bobby Convey (I think), Charlie Davies, Stuart Holden, Michael Renken, Joseph Gyau, Terrence Boyd etc off the top of my head), we really need to hope they can stay healthy AND bring the proper mental make up to bear (the latter certainly played a role in some failures like that of Adu, Mathis, and Eddie Johnson, despite the latter two also suffering serious injuries) to make the most from their potential. That's what makes having so many prospects at the same time so crucial because it's just inevitable that bad things will strike for some, either from ill luck, or bad mental makeup or both.

    Interesting long post about absolutely nothing related to Weah at Celtic.

    C’mon people.

    Thread derails go with the player's success. So, and with Forrest back from injury Tim is likely to get a bit less PT and we're going to have a whole lot more derails coming at us.

    Weah is still 34 pages behind Parks - the bullet train of dee-rails. Of course Parks has been promoted all the way from Benfica to NYCFC!!

    Celtic down 0-1 but still a tight game. I feel they could use Timo in the 2nd.

    He'll probably get in when they're 0-3 and have nothing to lose.

    Man, La Liga teams always look formidable in Europe.

    Weah is coming on now, along with Edouard. Because of ********ing course they are coming on together.
